Interview Our Students
We take care of logistics to ensure you have a great recruiting experience
Our Career Engagement Studio offers 10 interview rooms to help you connect directly with potential talent. Interviews are held at 3290 Grainger Hall, 975 University Ave, Madison, WI 53706.
Check-in begins at 7:45 a.m. Upon arrival, we will provide a packet containing the interview schedule and student résumés.
Virtual interview options are also available. We encourage you to schedule virtual interviews in Handshake, which allows us to make our interview rooms available to students during your scheduled virtual interview day.
You are encouraged to schedule second-round interviews on Fridays, with first-round interviews scheduled for the remaining days of the week. Interview schedules are customizable but typically consist of 30 minute time slots with a 30 minute morning and afternoon break and an hour lunch break.
Limited parking is available on a by-request basis. If you require parking on campus for your visit, please request at least three weeks in advance.
The Capital Café is conveniently located on the first floor of Grainger Hall. Upon arrival, company representatives will receive a guest pass for complimentary beverage or snacks at our 1st floor Café. Lunch breaks are typically built into your interview schedule between 11:30 a.m. – 12:30 p.m. unless you request otherwise.
